After such a hit humid day Britain is now being hit by big thunderstorms. I watch an app called blitzortnung and you can see lightening strikes from around the world. He thunderstorms that we’re here an hour ago have moved up towards the North East of the country, but it looks like another line of storms is on its way up from the Midlands. I tried to take some photos but the first few didn’t work very well because my phone camera was on automatic. By the time it had decided on an exposure the flash was gone (orange coloured sky photos caused by street lamps) then I realised if I set lit on the basic manual mode I would get quicker ictures despite the view on the camera being darker. The purplish photos were from doing that. I managed to actually catch a bolt of lightning! The bright one, like daylight was just an extremely bright flash.
Now its raining again. No doubt we will have more but its 3.39am….
Bright purple, showy, flared.
Full of energy,
Zing-ING, splashed, clamouring
Add purple and it blasts through,
Flights of fancy
High pitched song,
Not calm pink
Or barmy blue
But purple, violet, lavender, plum, grape
Mix blue, red and white
The sun was warm today although it remains low in the sky. These tall grass heads were back lit by it. The sun was also reflecting on the metal fence. I couldn’t see the image properly as the sun was dazzling me.
I’ve done a few edits to the photo in black and white…
The negative image in particular looks quite alien.
The moon danced last night
Leaping across the sky
It sang of silver shadows
Falling far and wide
The moon rang with music
Notes of heavenly tunes
Rising and falling
moon bows shining bright
The moon smiled last night
As it travelled overhead
Bathing the world with glimmers
And frosty gauzy white
The moon breathed last night
Cool breezes soft and sweet
Gentle dreaming sighing
Sleep in silent flight.
Oh is there light here?
Is there white, bright, shining light?
So sharp and fine. Like a sharks tooth,
Pearly white, strong and mighty.
Toothy, polished, grinning white?
Shining from above, gleaming, dazzling.
Shattering, cool like marble, alabaster, chalk?
Oh so very bright, beacon, fire,
Glowing, not glimmering. Showing me the way.
